    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for more than 8 years

    Cons

    Very lean organisation so very hard to grow without experience.

    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent engineers. Excellent product. Rewarding and valuable work in an important sector. Good physical working environment. Good opportunities for adding to and improving technical skills.

    Cons

    Unqualified management, poor advancement opportunities, Danish males hired or promoted over more qualified candidates. Good / hard work is punished rather than being rewarded. I was told when I left that I should take the experience off my resume because if future employers called Vestas HR to confirm that I had worked there, they would do everything in their power to prevent me from gaining future employment at another company. They seem to be making good on that promise. International employees should stay far, far away.

    I have been working at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Vestas has fantastic benefits and really emphasizes a great work-life balance. It's a relatively young company, so there's a lot of opportunity to make a big impact.

    Cons

    Vestas is a Danish company. I worked at a satellite office in the US, and it was challenging to get information out of Denmark at times. In addition, there were a lot of 5 am meetings (Colorado time) to communicate with our Danish colleagues.
